Fallout 76 Mods Will Only Work On Private Servers When They Release In 2019
One day, Fallout 76 will allow mods, but they will only work on private servers. It was revealed in a recent interview with GameSpot by marketing boss Pete Hines.
"Mod support is going to be tied to work that we're also doing on private servers, and letting people do private servers. Mods will be a thing that runs on private servers," he said.
"I don't foresee a universe in which we allow players to come in [to Fallout 76's public servers] with their own unique and different mods. If you want to run mods, they'll have to be done on a private server," Hines explained.
"You'll be deciding what sort of mods you're including and running, and everyone playing on that server is playing with those mods."
At the soonest, anyway, mods won’t be available until November 2019, one year after the release of the core game. "It's going to be a lot of work. But mods and private servers are definitely coming," he added.
Fallout 76 is releasing November 14, 2018, for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
